    1. cat /proc/cpuinfo
    &
    11. A network of relatively inexpensive computers (including PCs), potentially using different processors and hardware architectures, united by GNU/Linux and special system-level software into a massively parallel computing system, so that all of the computers work as one computer. A good cheap way to have a supercomputer :)


    Not got time for anymore.

    giving you three nugget

    just double checking your run level answer, i think it may be wrong, conferring with a friend

    and 3 and 6 are wrong :) but im guessing 6 being wrong is not your fault ;)

    XF86Config is the command line for xfree86, I think there are 5 runlevels , a run level determines how the system boots eg which services etc.

    Thinking about it I have run kill -9 for stubborn programs so I shall risk it and say there are 9 runlevels.

    Is it ctrl-altfunction key to move between the consoles?

    Tricky quiz Ryan!!

    This is what I found on the net

    12. Simply put, a 'runlevel' determines which programs are executed at sytem startup. This is what I found on the net

    12. In Linux, runlevels define how the system is started. This is what I found in my book.

    I made a mistake here, I only knew of 7 but my book mentions an eighth
    S Single user mode; from the boot prompt, only with US keyboard

    0 System Halt
    1 Single user mode
    2 Local multiuser mode without remote network
    3 Full multi-user mode with network (Default)
    4 not used
    5 Full multi-user mode with network and X display manager
    6 System Reboot


    Another stab at 6. tune2fs

    Bash 3.0 replaced 2.05?

    I think xfree86 started talking about or introducing licenses that some people didn't like. Not sure about the details.

    An alias allows a command with arguments to be run by using a user-defined string eg alias ll = 'ls -l'

    'who' gives users and terminal.

    You learn something new everyday!!

    8. By default, on a FreeBSD system, root's login shell is csh (the C shell)

    On MAC OS X the default shell is tcsh. The available user shells also include bash, csh, sh, and zsh; bash is the default for shell scripts instead of zsh as in earlier versions of Mac OS X.
